Sharing: Challenge Entry

Yesterday I finished up a new art piece:  "Time 2 Journey"
 
The piece is a domino collage.  The dominoes were altered with Latte, Sunshine Yellow and Gold Mixatives alcohol inks.  Then with Coffee Archival ink, I stamped the images using various Tim Holtz stamps.  Each domino received a top coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.  Each domino was attached to a 3.75" x 4.5" rectangle of iron colored screening (which I altered with Latte AI). 
I took copper wiring and wove it through the holes of the screening.  Various charms, beads and findings were altered with the same AIs and attached to the dominoes or through the wires.
 Here are the challenges I've entered this piece in:




This piece is for sale.  Please see the button above for information.
